Tuition, Fees and Additional Costs
Member programs should be prepared to contribute $325 per week for private school summer programs and $450 per week for pre-college programs. Tuition for Miss Porter’s gets sent directly to the school, not SEA.

PLEASE NOTE that each school requires additional funds (between $200-$500) for books, supplies and incidentals that are not included in the tuition. Programs may be asked to pay for these costs upfront upon acceptance of each student and is an additional cost to the tuition. In certain cases, an initial enrollment fee upon acceptance may also be requested and will vary in amount depending on the school and the financial documents submitted by the students’ families.

To determine the amount of scholarship allotted, most schools will require the family of each student to fill out a confidential financial questionnaire and provide copies of 2016 or 2017 IRS 1040 Forms and copies of Supporting W-2 Forms and/or 1099 Forms from the same year as the IRS 1040 Form. **Based on this information, the school may ask for an additional contribution from a student’s family based on their ability to pay.  It is very important that this is clear to your students’ families before you make your nominations – they must be willing to disclose financial information and able to provide supporting documentation, and they may be asked by the school to contribute to the cost of the program.

Member Programs should be prepared to contribute for each student accepted:

  • Member programs should be prepared to contribute $325 per week for private school summer programs and $450 per week for pre-college programs.
  • Additional stipend for books, supplies, and incidentals (between $200-$500)
  • Travel costs

SEA is committed to raising the following funds for each student accepted:

  • Balance of scholarship tuition
  • $100 towards airfare (if necessary)
  • Application fee for selected students
